Transparent pricing explained for online sellers and businesses collecting funds with World Account

Pricing, often called a spread or margin, is the difference between the rate we buy your currency and the rate we sell it to you. We will always be upfront about where your money goes.

Most banks and FX providers will not disclose their pricing/margin as it’s hidden in the exchange rate you receive as the customer.

^No fees charged for opening account, cross currency transactions, receiving funds or account management. Fees may apply for same currency transactions

Exotic currencies have less liquidity, which simply means the market has fewer buyers and sellers of those currencies. Pricing in Low liquidity Currency Markets can fluctuate extensively based on factors such as time of day, amount of currency being traded on a particular day and any data releases that may swing the currency one way or the other.
If you’re on a better margin, you will continue to receive that pricing. We also offer a best rate guarantee.
